Welcome to Ask an Addict

AskanAddict.com is intended to provide addiction support and advice in a non-judgmental way so that the addict or anyone else that's been affected by an addict will know there are many who understand and eliminate the feeling of being alone. Ask an Addict knows it may be hard to talk with family and friends as many times they just don’t understand. Many have fractured those important relationships in life during active addiction. When it comes to seeking information, likeness, and establishing a strong recovery program who better to ask then someone who has been there! At Ask an Addict we listen and learn, together. Whether your an addict, a recovering addict or have been affected by an addict, we all have that common denominator of addiction.

If I had to use one word to describe our members, it would be the word compassion. (sympathetic consciousness of others' distress together with a desire to alleviate it)

Thankful, but hesistant.
I won't lie. Feeling Thankful is a lot more difficult when you've lost your only child.

My new life - Update
...I am putting up Christmas Decorations as I write this. I have his ornaments with his name..the ones he made for me as a child...the "baby's 1st" etc....I hung them on the back of the tree..too painful for them to be in my face but also too painful not to hang them up. The other kids asked me not to hang his stocking up this year..I can see the pain they are dealing with as well..I want to concentrate on what is wonderful and loving in my life...more than enough energy has already gone to the dysfunction..I am doing well with my new resolve..Changed my phone number & blocked Facebook messages..I do not fall back into bad habits and try to check his page either...I have not heard from him in a week..I have no idea what is going on with him and I don't want to..let's see what he can do on his own..December 6 is his 28th birthday..he may show up for his "birthday money" that he will assume he is owed...in the past that money never went further than a strip club or for his party supplies..I would rather start an account for if he ever celebrates a year clean & sober...
